Saugerties is a picturesque Ulster County town on the Hudson River that has great shops, restaurants, and outdoor recreation. This c.1890 painted-brick beauty is right in the middle of it all.
From its white picket fence to its wraparound verandah, the four-bedroom, two-bath home has been well-maintained. It holds a lot within its 3,152 square feet.
The verandah is steeped in tradition with a gray floor and original wood wainscoted ceiling.
Open the red front door into the entry, which has a rather steep set of stairs heading up and a wood-floored hallway.
The living room has a high ceiling and a decorative fireplace surround. The plastered walls are painted in a grassy green.
The dining room has wainscoted half-walls below rust-colored plaster. A half-glass door leads to the side of the wraparound porch.
The other walls are exposed brick, with a white furniture-quality island separating the dining room from the kitchen.
The island seats two and is topped with dark green tile. The rest of the kitchen has white-painted Shaker cabinets, with stainless steel appliances and a stunning punched-copper ceiling. A door leads from the kitchen to the outside.
The main floor also has two bedrooms. This one has wood floors and floor-to-ceiling windows.
The other main-floor bedroom is smaller, with wall-to-wall carpeting and the same textured, rust-color plaster as the dining room.
At the top of the stairs is a hallway leading to two more bedrooms and a bath.
This room is sunny, with a closed-up fireplace beneath an exposed-brick column. More original wood floors are evident here, too.
The bathroom has white subway tile halfway up the walls, topped by rustic wood planking and paint. If you like vintage fixtures, you’ll love the separate taps on the sink and the frosted glass in the window.
Besides the four bedrooms and two baths in the house, the listing says there’s an accessory apartment with another bedroom, kitchen, living room, and bath; however, there don’t seem to be any photos of it. This big room, with a functioning woodstove, has served as an antique shop.
It’s got beautiful details like brick walls, wainscoting on the ceiling, and windows that bring in lots of light.
The house has an adorable back porch, too. All told, there’s not quite a quarter-acre. But the Saugerties Lighthouse is just a beautiful, mile-long walk away, and Partition Street—the place to go for Alleyway Ice Cream and Inquiring Minds Bookstore—is literally around the block from here.
